• Physical Therapy "Lessens the Pain Tremendously"

    In "unbearable" pain after a serious motorcycle accident and 11 surgeries, Dean decided to give physical therapy a chance.

    He was highly skeptical at first, but he quickly became a believer in the benefits of physical therapist treatment.

    "If someone offered me pain medication today, I would not take it," he said. "Just do the physical therapy. It lessens the pain tremendously."

    This video is produced by Net Health in support of APTA's #ChoosePT campaign, raising awareness about the risks of long-term opioid use and safe approaches to pain management.
